Table For Four
Eva Isaksen works in a variety of media, most frequently collage, acrylic inks, graphite, and monotypes. Recent explorations have pushed the collage style she is most known for into a more graphic, abstracted realm, using a range of soft neutrals and warm blacks, as well as controlled hits of highly saturated colors. She has also recently used source materials from her native Norway - vintage clippings from publications and texts. Everything Isaksen does is woven with her recognizable sensibility, while she continues to explore new realities within her work.
This piece features Isaksen's unique blend of printing with botanical elements and collage work. It's patterning, while abstract, is grounded by recognizable natural forms.
